Fields of Study
The Sociology Department at Texas A&M University is a generalist program that supports a wide array of research interests. Doctoral students may declare a major in one of several specific areas.
- Crime, Law, and Deviance
- Political and Economic Sociology
- Race, Class, and Gender
- Social Psychology
Doctoral students also declare minors. These may be taken from any of the areas named here provided the minor does not duplicate the major area of concentration. In addition, students may work with their committees to formulate other minors not listed here. Please note, this option is not available for the major.
Each semester, the Sociology Department offers seminars in a variety of interesting topics. We will soon post a complete list of seminars.
